      5 entries in '32, 5 entries in '33 and 2 entries in '64. So, I'll say 12 Studebaker sponsored.

          If we're counting the Hunt-Jenkins Special, from '31 (not actually entered by Studebaker, but it did bear the logo) then I'll raise my guess to 13.

            Nobody knows the answered to "sponsored" since that might include anything from providing every penny to giving the team a few free decals.

            Factory logo isn't STP or anything else except the Studebaker script or logo.

            Okay, let's take your question at face value: Factory logo + qualified and raced.

                To: jnormanh,---- Well, I read Your comments and hear what Your saying. We're talking about Studebaker Corporate entries here. Do not consider side sponsorship. and buddua..buddua thirty is incorrect!!
                (definition 'side' sponsorship....Champion Spark Plug, Bear ,Valvoline, Perfect Circle, Firestone, etc.)

                  Okay, Studebaker corporate entered -

                  1932 Zeke Myer, #37, Cliff Bergere, #22Tony Gulotta, #25, Peter Kreiss, #18, Luther Johnson, #46
                  1933 Tony Gullota, #34, Zeke Meyer, #8 Luther Johnson #46, Cliff Bergere #6, L.L. Corum #47

                  The 4WD Novis? Both Cars for '63 were entered by The Novi corp. Both '64 cars were entered by STP division, Studebaker. The '65 Novis were entered by (Unser) the STP division, Studebaker, and (Hurtubise) by Chemical Compounds Division, Studebaker.

                  1966, Clark and Unser entered by STP division, Studebaker
                  1967, RPJ, #40 STP Division, Studebaker.

                  The '68 Turbines were entered by the STP Corp as were Pollard and Andretti in '69 and Andretti and Follmer in '70, and others through '74.

                  So I guess, according to your clarified definition, the number is 17. Did I miss any?

                    To: jnormanh,------ You've definitely done Your homework, and like I mentioned these trivia questions can be a pain in the ---, but as to the number of cars that qualified AND RACED under the 'STUDEBAKER' corporate
                    banner in the 100 years of the Indy 500, the answer is not seventeen. Feel free to try again!

                          Okay. I give up, and it looks like everyone else has too.

                          I'm willing to learn. So what's the correct answer? Cars/drivers if you don't mind.


                          And, if it matters, what was the question, exactly? - Studebaker corporate entries or Studebaker corporate banner? The first implies to me that Studebaker corp or one of it's wholly owned divisiopns or subsidiaries was the official entrant, the second implies that other entities may have been the official entrant, but Studebaker corp was the major (or sole) sponsor. Best I can do is 19 if the first definition is the criteria. If the second, it's more.

                            To: jnormanh,---- OK, that's loud and clear....but I want to give one more callout to anyone out there who wants to give this question a whirl. (Remember, don't overcomplicate the original question!)

                                Since you asked for number of "cars" and not entries, I'll guess 6 as some "cars" raced multiple years.
